Body of British soldier found at Waterloo... part 2

Remember that post I did back in the summer about the body found on the battlefield at Waterloo [clicky]??

In the paper on Saturday I spotted this which brings the story nicely up to date ... it transpires that he was actually Hanoverian... read on, absolutely fascinating!

    1. Stokes - I often think I might like to have been an archaeologist (specialising in battle sites).. I may still do a course of study when I retire.... I find it absolutely fascinating!

  2. Wow! Thanks for posting this follow up. I wonder how long it'll be before they reckon they know who he is?

    1. Rosbif - sounds like they're getting close.. possible initials, and possible regiment from the buckle if it reveals it's secrets...
